This stuff was emailed to me by a Windoze programmer type entity I used to work wiv:-

  1. Santa is bearded, corpulent, and dresses funnily.
  2. When you ask Santa for something, the odds of receiving what you wanted are infinitesimal.
  3. Santa seldom answers your mail.
  4. When you ask Santa where he gets all the stuff he's got, he says, "Elves make it for me!".
  5. Santa only cares about one deadline - his.
  6. Your parents ascribed supernatural powers to Santa, but did all the work themselves.
  7. Nobody knows who Santa has to answer to for his actions.
  8. Santa laughs entirely too much.
  9. Santa thinks nothing of breaking into home (PC) and having a snoop around.
  10. Only a lunatic says bad things about Santa in his presence.
